Archos 605 wifi (HMV £50)...order cancelled

This deal was posted on here a few days ago. Received an HMV cancelled order email. Have had a few of those cancellation emails recently. As per usual, they are saying that the manufacturer is no longer producing the item. Oh well, it was worth a try. Just thought I'd let you know, there were a lot of people who ordered one of these if I remember correctly. Glad I didn't buy the DVR station for it now..

Exactly!

HMV cancelled my order for a Guitar Hero On Tour Decades for the same reason. It took them 16 days to cancel; ordered 13th December cancelled 29th December. So somebody never got their xmas present! HMV for worst company! Any votes?

when did you guys order it?

Dont understand why some were cancelled and others are still on but looking for alternative source as I thought HMV's system isnt first come first serve

You've got my vote! HMV have some great deals, but they don't seem to ever honour misprices, come up with lame 'out of stock' excuses.

Wasn't a misprice this time though as they were instore as well. Probably shifted most of them on the shop floor.

It's a bit late but still £9.99 instore at toysrus

Just got my cancellation there too! :-(

I think the email is wrong, as if you check the archos website they are still selling this model. So the manufacturer is still selling them and I think HMV should honour the transactions.
It always surprises me that companies put web pages together that do not have a check on the number of items they have in stock. But I guess as thye took no money they have not broken the law just broken the trust customers have in them.

i ordered one 01/01/10 am too, just been told they are discontinued and theres nothing i can do about it. why were they showing as in stock when they weren't.
just had the same thing from b&q too, alright it was only a toaster, but if i reserved it why did they have none left?

hate companies like this!!!
